Join Robin D. G. Kelley, Professor in U.S. History at University of California, Los Angeles for a Jefferson Memorial Lecture on American Thanatocracy vs Abolition Democracy: On Cops, Capitalism, and the War on Black Life. 

This talk will examine how police in the neoliberal era–in tandem with other state and corporate entities—have become engines of capital accumulation, government revenue, gentrification, the municipal bond market, the tech and private security industry—in a phrase, the profits of death.
